Thumbs up Alert, bargain hunters!

I'm a big Internet shopper and like Overstock.com. Saved lots there. Tonight I learned something really cool. I had some cookbooks on my Amazon wish list and didn't get them for Christmas. No big deal. I was about to order them from Amazon when I received an email from Overstock this morning saying all items, for a limited time, had $1.00 shipping. Got my attention.

Didn't know Overstock carried books but, after a search, discovered they did. Looked for my books and, yep, they were there. Not only were they there, they were a cheaper than the used ones on Amazon. Okay, only a few cents cheaper, but they are NEW books.

Put the books in my cart and noticed that I was charged $2.95 for shipping and not $1.00, so I called Overstock. Media shipping is always $2.95 so the special rate didn't apply. That's fine. It's still less than Amazon.

Ordered my books from Overstock and can't wait to get them. Yeah!

My Christmas treat to me.

Yippee! I love new cookbooks - I bought one for myself about Mexican cooking not long ago. No matter how much we think we know, there is always something new to learn. THAT is the fun of cooking!

I will probably be stopping by to check some of their stuff out. I have some cookbooks on my list including South American, Central American, Indian, Thai, Indonesian, and Chinese.
My eyes are bigger than my wallet unfortunately! LOL.

I'll get Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day and a cupcake cookbook that I can't recall the name at the moment. I can't wait until I receive the books. I'm a happy camper.

I don't know. You might have to go to their "contact us" area and find out.

Oh...bread cookbook. How many do you want? I have many. Just adding to my collection. I'll use it, though, like all the rest.
